Congratulations to our 2015 Worcester Strides Pacesetters, Heidi Scuderi and Carol Ward, for their outstanding fundraising efforts this year! They have both gone above and beyond working to fundraise for the fight against breast cancer. Are you inspired by these women and want to join the group of 2016 pacesetters? Sign up today and start fundraising.

The final numbers are in for 2015.  Drum roll please ….. $172,061!  Congratulations everyone!  This includes sponsorships, individual and team donations, and also company matching gifts. These donations will help us to finish the fight against breast cancer and together we exceeded the 2014 achievement.  The mere words Thank You just don’t seem adequate to express our appreciation and gratitude to you all for all your hard work.  Now who is ready for more fun in 2016?  The plans are already moving along.  Who’s excited?  We are!  Mark your calendars for Sunday October 16 2016 at INSTITUTE PARK!  Yes, we have moved the location because we had about 3,000 participants and expect to grow in numbers again this year.  Worcester, Worcester, Worcester!  What a fabulous city! 

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a celebration of survivorship - an occasion to express hope and our shared determination to make this breast cancer's last century.

We believe that everyone with breast cancer should have support.

That's why the American Cancer Society is so determined to be here for the survivors, the patients, the caregivers, and the millions saved through early detection.

Help raise funds for groundbreaking breast cancer research, life-saving education, and critical patient services by walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Making Strides of Worcester.

Get ready to join more than one million volunteers nationwide. When you sign up, fundraise, and participate in one of our noncompetitive, three- to five-mile walks, you will be there to support every person affected by breast cancer.

We walk to make sure that anyone touched by this disease has a hand to hold. So give us yours by taking the first steps in supporting this year's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

You can start a team, or keep your team going. And keep raising awareness and donations.

Begin today! The sooner we start, the farther we'll go.

Join us now.

Why your participation matters
The American Cancer Society has been saving lives for more than a century. And we will continue to lead every step of the way. Find out how we're putting your dollars to work now - doing the most in every community to be there for those on the frontline as we fight this disease.


Volunteer at our event
